    I was looking at a camo Nova for use as a Turkey gun. The fore end made alot of noise. Is that some that all of these do ? Can it be taken out or adjusted ?

    Thanks

    I sold my Camo Nova for just that reason. It made too much noise and it just sounded like a rattle trap.

    I've found the because the forearm is a bit longer than...let's say a 870..you get the impression that it moves more.

    What I did on mine was to tighten the hex screws on the forearm and that resolved a lot of the noise.

    Good luck

    Tighten the allen screws no more then 1/10 of a turn at a time. This worked very well on my Nova.

    My cousin has one and every time we cant call a turkey in, i tell him its cause they heard his gunning coming down the trail. It is noisy, but i am yet to see a situation where the rattling fore arms has affected the hunt. Pretty nice gun over all, but yes they all have that rattle.
